Confused Catholics - Evil Catholics

Pictured below is a tragic human being who needs our prayers. This confused (perhaps even evil) man even aspires to become the Prime Minister of this great country. In a way, he reflects what is so wrong in the Church in Canada. A layman man who claims to be Catholic - yet rejects the Church's teaching. Such are legion, this man merely being a better known figure who reflects same. The other side of the coin, is the hierarchy: silent, perhaps fearful, even complicit, perhaps wavering in the Faith - even secretly opposed...

A confused Catholic needs to be catechized. If such a confused Catholic manifests ill will upon being corrected, then perhaps a just penalty should be called for what one might call an "evil" Catholic. 

Confused or evil, he needs our prayers. 

Confused or evil?

From the Catechism:

CCC 2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved. 

CCC 2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. 

CCC 2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

Can. 1369 A person is to be punished with a just penalty, who, at a public event or assembly, or in a published writing, or by otherwise using the means of social communication, utters blasphemy, or gravely harms public morals, or rails at or excites hatred of or contempt for religion or the Church.

He is a Pelosi Catholic...
There are still two or three people in this country who do not recognize this man at first sight... I am one of them.
